Crutcher family

Posted: 1301130540000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Crutcher, Lynch, Chambers, Long, Norvel
Hello--

I'm a descendant of James G. Crutcher (B. 1846, Kentucky), son of Charles Todd Crutcher, (b. 1821, Kentucky, married to Sarah Jane Lynch (?) 15 June 1843 Franklin, Kentucky, d. 1859).

I'm trying to verify that Charles Todd really was the son James Allen Crutcher (b. 1793, Franklin, Kentucky) and Nancy Chambers (b. 27 March 1791, Virginia, d. 1 Nov 1857).

I would also like to verify that James Allen was the son of John Crutcher (b. 1764, Caroline County, Virginia, d. 19 Sep 1824, Frankfort, Kentucky) and Martha (Mary?) Long, b. 1764, North Carolina, d. 10 Feb 1852, Frankfort, Kentucky.

All of the above makes sense, I would just like to be able to verify the accuracy of these names and dates before accepting them blindly from other people's public trees.

The greatest reason for my concern is the common listing for John Crutcher's parents. If it is correct, his father, Hugh Crutcher, was born in 1692 in Essex, Virginia and his mother, Betsy Norvel, was born in 1693 in Caroline County, Virginia. That would make Hugh and Betsy 71 and 72 when their son, John, was born.

Has anyone else noticed this discrepancy? I assume there is a generation or two missing. I have been unable to verify anything through birth records or census reports from James Allen on down. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I might find real documents and not just Ancestry.com family trees?

Any help you offered would be greatly appreciated. And I live in California. I could do an exchange in information if anybody needs anything on California ancestors or details.

Much thanks!
